Aside from all the soul and spirit mumbo-jumbo or the hollow-earth stuff to which I cannot and will not relate, if you ask why the aliens seem to be technologically more advanced than us, i would suggest the most likely answer is time. If we, for arguments sake, assume they are from Zeta-Reticulum as is often claimed, this pair of stars is, according to newest research, a BILLION (1^9) years older than our sun. Now if we assume that evolution works along the same lines all over the universe, imagine how far ahead they must be. there are red dwarf systems with high enough metallicity (for astronomers everything above helium is metal) to support life that are as much as SIX BILLION years older than sun, imagine how far advanced, not only technologically, beings from there could be, compared to us.

But, some of the world's 'greatest' discoveries have been made by people without any sort of remorse or other emotion and that's why, they seem to have become less of a human (or maybe more so), and lost those parts which MAKE US HUMAN so their experiments were to other humans, unorthodox, unnatural and cruel. Yet they produced some fine results, and ask yourself, would you have killed all those German scientists if it had been up to you, or would you let them into the country via Paperclip?
Germany, who had very little in the way of morales and dogma was a leader in research because NOTHING was unnatural, NOTHING was disallowed, they could do what they like.
It does seem like the greys - mutilating humans, animals, no anaesthetic, etc, almost like they CAN'T care rather than WON'T.
